A classic electric bass - reborn!

Modeled after the 1964 incarnation of the world's first electric bass, the Lakland Skyline 55-64 lets you hold down the low end in style. That's largely in part thanks to Lakland's rendition of the famous split-coil pickup, which gives your Skyline 55-64 the trademark thump that's powered the backline on many main stages for years - you know the sound we're talking about! And with upgrades such as Lakland's impressive dual-access bridge, you'll get the best combination of classic sound and modern stability with your Skyline 55-64 bass.

Skyline Series gives you excellent quality at an affordable price

The Lakeland Skyline 55-64 electric bass gives you amazing quality for a great low price. That's because the Skyline 55-64, like all Skyline Series basses, is made overseas and finished in Lakland's stateside shop. So, regardless of where it was originally made, each Skyline 55-64 passes through the hands of Lakland's US luthiers long before it finds its way to you. And when you add to that the fact that your Skyline 55-64 comes equipped with the same pickup and hardware as its US-made cousin, you know you're getting an amazing deal.
